Our FTP family is incredibly grateful for the recent generosity of the Galt Family Foundation at a time when vulnerable individuals need additional support.
Late last year, the Galt Family Foundation made a $35,000 donation in support of the essential programs and services offered by FTP. This substantial contribution will provide a major boost to FTP’s annual revenue, and will significantly help cover costs related to unexpected changes in FTP’s program delivery. Like many other agencies serving vulnerable populations, FTP has had to adjust almost all aspects of its service delivery due to Covid-19.
John Galt, president and CEO of Husky Injection Molding Systems, founded the Galt Family Foundation with his family as a way to give back to the community. When asked why this contribution in support of FTP’s work was so important to him and his family, Mr. Galt replied, “The Galt Family Foundation invests in the communities we live in, with a special emphasis on supporting those who are vulnerable in our society. The last year has placed tremendous burdens on those at risk, affecting both their mental and physical health. FTP and the critical services it provides have never been more important. We are pleased to be able to play a small part in helping to deliver those much needed services.”
“The Galt Family Foundation provided this additional support at a critical time,” remarks FTP’s Executive Director, Norah Kennedy. “Throughout the pandemic we have been directed to ‘stay home’ to protect ourselves and our community from the virus. However, for those living in abusive or violent relationships, home is often the most dangerous place of all. In order to help keep those members of our community safe during this time, FTP has had to adapt almost all of its critical programs and services. Donations like this incredibly generous one from the Galt Family have helped us do just that. We are immensely grateful.”
